Middlesbrough vs Tottenham Prediction

Even though Middlesbrough has the advantage in playing at home, they have been put to test against Championship sides. Meanwhile, Tottenham has been getting their grooves in the Premier League after Mourinho was appointed as the Gaffer.

With players like Dele Ali, Harry Kane, Son etc in form lately, Tottenham has the ability to find the back of the net. Even so, Jose Mourinho has confirmed about the team’s problems at the back.

Especially, when playing at stranger grounds, the Spurs have been lacking the composure lately. But that doesn’t make them weak to win but only weak to score goals.

Besides that, Middlesbrough is on a four-game winning streak in their overall schedule. Also, they have been unbeaten in the last six home matches.

On the other side, Tottenham has suffered five defeats in the last ten away games in their fixture. Also, the Spurs are unbeaten in three of the last five overall matches in major competitions.

Even with a bad run in their away games lately, the Spurs will have their advantage in the league standards. Since they are playing at the top most league, Championship contingents will not be that much threat for Mourinho’s boys.

Apart from that, their h2h clashes have also seen Tottenham win in a majority of games. Even though Middlesbrough has a good record against the Spurs at home, it was in their PL times. As such, the visiting side has more chance based on their strong performance in their respective league.

Hence, we can count on the Spurs to probably win the game in ninety minutes. Since the visitor is not at their best on the road, we can expect the total to be under 3.5 goals.
